Sims drifts to third consecutive pole

Alexander Sims has drifted his way to pole for the second time this weekend and the third time in a row, a new Formula E record.

Antonio Felix da Costa topped group qualifying and took a world championship point, but he could not convert it in Super Pole.

The Portuguse driver had two massive slides and one tap of the wall, which meant he would qualify last in Superpole and he’ll start from sixth.

Yesterday’s race winner, Sam Bird, just missed out on a superpole slot and will start in seventh alongside Edoardo Mortara. Maxi Gunther will start from ninth and Andre Lotterer will round out the top ten.

Reigning Champion Jean-Eric Vergne will start from eleventh for the second day in a row, but will line up ahead of yesterday’s front row starter Stoffel Vandoorne.

Robin Frijns will start one place lower than in yesterdays race, in 13th. Pascal Wehrlein and Daniel Abt round out the top 15.

Felipe Massa will start from 16th ahead of Oliver Rowland with Oliver Turvey in 18th. Former WEC teammates Neel Jani and Brendon Hartley complete the top 20.
